#2854621 Please help The Swinton Supporters' Trust.....

Posted by Peewagg on 19 December 2013 - 07:46 PM

Always had an affinity for Hunslet and Hunslet fans. You guys demonstrate why. THANKYOU ALL.
Not only are we fellow '4 Cups Winners', but also I used to work for Clantex Ltd on Hillidge Road Insustrial Estate.

Please share with as many other fans as you possibly can.
We are Championship Rugby League. We are FAMILY.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to everyone connected with The Hawks and thanks again :-)


#2837380 Trust Statement

Posted by Peewagg on 18 November 2013 - 09:13 AM

Well said. Whilst it can be very challenging in light of people having other jobs and commitments to attend to, it is by being proactive that the Trust can add real value and help progress things in a positive direction from the perspective of the supporters and the Swinton community. I just hope whatever new management / investment scenario does emerge it will be respectful of the heritage and identity of the club and have a vision for the future that will nuture these things.
It would be nice to see potential new owners be broad minded enough to seek out a meaningful dialogue with the Trust, as it would be bad business for them to take the club in a direction that may alienate yet more potential supporters. On the other hand, the club hasn't achieved anything like its full potential for some time, so there is good business to be done by positively harnessing the passion for the Lions that still burns in many people despite the 20 years of exile.
But there's no escaping the bottom line that whilst the potential is there for Swinton Lions to be a perfectly sustainable and successful club at least at Championship level, achieving the brand's full potential needs a fit-for-purpose home venue and a lot of work.

Nice one, Mr Hudson :-)
